Large flock of Lapwing well over 50 possibly 70-100, seen from moving vehicle.
On roof of large blue building that I think used to be part of the Seddon Atkinson factory, have vague memories of working there in the 80s.

c85 Lapwings on the roof of Scania - West Pennine Trucks at Stakehill Industrial Park, Middleton at 1.30pm. Probably quite a few more than this?....as only one elevation of the roof could be seen from my vantage point alongside the Rochdale Canal at Slattocks.

Below is a copy of a message just sent to Ian Campbell.

There have been, I think, two flocks of rooftop Lapwings in Bolton for some time. The Northern flock are invariably around the junction referred to below. The Southern flock could be seen on rooftops adjacent to St Peter's Way in the Raikes Lane area (in particular the VanLiners roof). There was no sign of the Southern flock today and I cannot recall seeing it for some time.

Regards

George Warburton




Ian

Cen Tyres is at junction of Higher Bridge Street, Halliwell Road and Blackburn Road.

If you enter Bolton along St Peter's Way (the dual carriageway accessing the motorway network), carry straight on at traffic lights at end of St P Way, pass B & Q on right, through next lights and pass Mercedes dealership on right. The said junction is at next t/lights.

The birds were on CT roof, the Motor World/AIS roof across the road, on new warehousing behind CT, and on older property behind Motor World.

Regards

George Warburton

Where is Central Tyres?

The small flock I usually see near Sainsbury's in Bolton has been absent this year so far (probably down to the increased frequency of Peregrine sitings in that area).
